February spells romance and in this issue we have some exquisite wine offers and prizes for your loved ones!
In our vineyards the persistent heat, and strong winds, over the start of the harvest season has resulted in several regions picking earlier this year. Excitingly many wineries are reporting that the quality is really good for the grapes which they have picked so far! Picking continues for the later ripening varieties, some of which are picked by hand and the others with automated machines. Due to the extreme temperatures picking is usually done in the early hours as vineyard managers rush their grapes into cellars while still cool from the night air.
The revised Level 3 Lockdown announced last week allowed us to reopen on the 2nd February and it was so good to welcome back our regular customers and see both familiar and new faces in our stores.
|Our revised Level 3 Lockdown
opening hours are as follows:
Monday – Thursday 10.00 – 18.00
While we were closed in January many of you took advantage of the convenience of ordering online and some purchased vouchers to spend in our stores once open. All our online orders were successfully delivered last week. Once again we thank you all so much for your wonderful, continued and loyal support in helping us through these very tough and uncertain times.
